Intern & Volunteer in Mozambique

Mozambique is a dream location for divers, hikers, surfers and animal lovers alike. From bush to beach, there are endless adventure opportunities in its special undisturbed coastlines and preserved national parks.  

If you choose to volunteer in Mozambique, our marine research and conservation projects work toward the conservation of the country’s coral reefs and the marine life that rely on them as a habitat. Volunteers monitor the condition of the reefs and the well-being of the animals that live there. Anyone interested in marine biology or scuba diving will enjoy contributing to protecting this amazing ecosystem.

Intern and volunteer work in Mozambique will be based in Tofo, a small and relaxed coastal town. You’ll be able to explore the Indian Ocean by taking surf lessons or renting kayaks in your free time, or get caught up in the tranquil lifestyle of the town by mingling with locals in the markets and cafes. Be sure to try pão (a Portuguese bread roll baked in wood-fired ovens), peri peri chicken and the wide range of fresh fish on offer. Tofo boasts an astonishingly complex marine ecosystem, which you can enjoy by diving in the Manta Reef. You’re also well located to travel to one of Mozambique’s famed diving sites- Kingfisher Reef in Inhambane!

Take advantage of the opportunity to go on a safari through Limpopo National Park during your volunteer program or internship in Mozambique. This unique reserve is a transfrontier park that links with Kruger National Park in South Africa and Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe. It covers an area of over a million hectares and is home to lions, elephants, rhinos, hippos and giraffes.
